Recommended for: culture vultures, lovers of experimental anything
Read in January, 1983

Back in the halcyon '80s when things just couldn't get weird enough for my taste, this little book opened a world of experimental music and art to my hungry brain. I so immersed myself in the likes of SPK, Rhythm & Noise, Cabaret Voltaire and Ralph Records that I missed a lot of '80s pop. To this day, this book is special to me with all of its reading lists, deranged bands, disgusting performance art and obsessive eccentricity. It's hard to believe that this was such an unusual time in retrospect, but this book convinces its readers that much was stirring under the ground way back then.
